Snowstorm to rock the northern Rockies towards the weekend – travel advisory

 Friday, November 23, 2018 


A bout of snow will blanket the northern and central Rockies this weekend, as per Steve Travis, AccuWeather Meteorologist.




Rocky Mountain snowstorm will affect travel this weekend. Those traveling to or from the following areas – Boise, Idaho; Great Falls and Billings, Montana; Rapid City, South Dakota; Jackson Hole and Casper, Wyoming; Park City, Utah; and Denver will have to face the brunt of airline delays and tough and deteriorating road conditions if the snowfall intensifies.





Holiday shopping plans might have to be shortened, especially across portions of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming during Friday and Friday evening.




As per Travis, heavy snow will start across Idaho, Montana and northern Utah Friday night, and then spread into Wyoming and central Colorado on Saturday.





Travel could be impossible for some time as heavy snow descends western Montana, Wyoming, central Utah and Colorado throughout Saturday, especially on secondary roads. Power outages, property damage, low visibility and extensive drifting of the snow can occur as well.





Denver is not expected to get snow from this storm, but it will be affected by the strong winds that could lead to flight delays on Saturday.






Delays at Denver and Salt Lake City can have a ripple effect at other hubs across the nation during the busy travel weekend.




While some ski resorts may close or have limited operations on Saturday. However, there will be a blanket of fresh snow on the favorite mountain on Sunday and Monday.




As the storm continues to move along, blizzard conditions are forecast to unfold over a large swath of the central Plains to part of the western Great Lakes region from Saturday night to Monday.
